Four Korean Americans were chosen by Business Insider this month for its “Silicon Valley 100: The most amazing and inspiring people in tech right now” list: Fitbit CEO James Park (No. 18), MyFitnessPal Cofounders Albert Lee and Mike Lee (No. 47) and ZenPayroll Cofounder Edward Kim (No. 83).

“We looked at who won big in the past year: star executives, industry-changing acquisitions, top VCs, promising companies shifting industries,” Business Insider wrote.

Both Fitbit and MyFitnessPal are health companions, one a bracelet that tracks physical activity and the other an app offering a diet and exercise database.

Zenpayroll is an online payroll service that Kim started with fellow Stanford grads Josh Reeves and Tomer London.

Elizabeth Holmes, Theranos CEO, topped the list, followed by Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and Apple CEO Tim Cook.
